Greetings - we are getting ready to book for Oct. and was wondering if anyone has any feedback on the aft suites - specifically the VS or PS suites on either the caribe or aloha decks...are the balcs all the same size? covered? quiet? Any ffedback greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There are minor differences in balcony size. The VS and the outboard PS balconies have a vertical structural member that slightly obstructs (IMO, others think it's a huge problem) the balcony. You have room for a table with 4 chairs, 2 loungers, and 2 little side tables.

All of the stern balconies are very quiet and private, and fully covered.

spongerob is correct,obstructions can be a real pain in the you know what!

stern balconies are the way to go!

Thanks for the feedback - I am sold on the aft cabin but am torn between booking the Aloha 751 cabin which is in between the Owner's and Grand Suite or Caribe 749 which seems to have a larger balcony...we plan on doing the dinner on the balc program at least once or twice so dont want a cramped balc. I hadnt really considered the obstruction on the aft side cabins - thanks for pointing that out...any other words of wisdom?
